Angels in America
Advisory Warning: This show contains strobe lighting, nudity and adult content.
The award winning Silken Thomas Players are back with another superb production, Angels in America. Hailed a one of the finest drama of our time, speaking to us of an entire era of life and death as no other play within memory, this play promises to enthrall.
In its sweep and imagination, it defines the collapse of a moral universe during the Reagan years in an unforgettable way, transcending its specific time in the richness of its portrait of an America Lost, perhaps to be regained.
Mr. Kushner's epic sense of loss and betrayal and longed-for saving grace amounts to a fantastic journey of the heart and mind crying out against the disintegration of tolerance and cities and certain, eternal dreams. For Silken Thomas, the 2010 All Ireland Champions, it ranks as nothing less than one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century.
